Brief Answer:
Cervical lymphadenopathy

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare magic and thanks for putting the query.
Lymph nodes may get enlarged during an infection and dont get back to their original size. As the fnac reports suggests that they are reactive, nothing else to be done just observation for any abrupt size increase is required.
Any further queries are always welcome.
Stay healthy
Thanks and regards

Brief Answer:
Cervical lymphadenopathy

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the information.
The reports suggest EBV infection but the lymphadenopathy is probably not due to this as in EBV INFECTION, there is generalised lymphadenopathy.
As IGM antibodies for CMV are normal, there is no acute infection.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Thanks and regards
